What is a Virtual Assistant?
Virtual Assistants are outsourced, micro-business owners who provide business support and administrative services using e-mail, phone, and fax technology. A Virtual assistant supports their client in many areas of business functions without ever having to step foot in the clients office.
How do I work with my assistant virtually?
Todays technology allows a business and a Virtual assistant to exchange information in a quick, affordable and simple way. You can e-mail, call, or fax your Virtual assistant- 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Virtual assistants are committed to responding to all requests within 24 hours. Your Virtual assistant will return the finished product to you, by your method of choice: E-mail attachment, Fax, USPS, or overnight mail.
Why would my business use a Virtual assistant?
A Virtual assistant is ALWAYS there to work for you but only when you NEED THEM. The more your business expands, the more administrative tasks you have. The creative labor force that provides a practical and cost effective solution is a Virtual assistant. A Virtual assistant offers several advantages over a paid employee- no paying for employee taxes, benefits, or WASTED TIME! Virtual assistants are independent contractors who bill only for the time worked or projects completed. Moreover, Virtual assistants are dependent on referrals and steady workflow from current clients so they take value and pride in all the work they do for your business.
Who uses Virtual assistants?
Small and home-based business owners who need competent, affordable, and quality office support take advantage of this creative, new workforce that provides high quality service to its clients, both in timeliness and accuracy.
As corporate downsizing continues, outsourcing has become the best way to replace full-time employees to maximize profits. All types of businesses, individuals, and entrepreneurs use Virtual assistants- consultants, sales professionals, CPAs, writers, plumbers, executive recruiters, insurance agencies and real estate brokers- just to name a few.
How can a Virtual assistant save my business money?
When you hire a Virtual assistant, you only pay for the work you need done- not for wasted time. You will save valuable time by not having to train your assistant, plus you will save on employment expenses, benefits, not to mention the money you save in equipment and software.
